Subject: Start of 2nd New Yorker 3-dayer
Now that the following night has become the best-known of the tour, if not the year (specifically the 2nd set), this night seems overlooked (well, like the rest of the tour it does have an official release). It's not in the top handful of shows from the tour, but has certain standouts. This starts a 3-day run, which followed the 3-day run in Albany. The show is known for the first The Weight and the last Revolution.
First Set. The entire set is above average; noticeably rolling into Minglewood (island phillies/on Long Island). I'm probably in the minority for loving Easy to Love You. It's Brent at his purest and most honest, I like the break, and Bobby and Jer liked playing this one. 3/15 was the best, but audio from this was used for Backstage Pass (the visual being later, from 7/6). High Time is a bit creaky and though Queen Jane is strong it's not, say 9/8. Loose Lucy is the 3rd one back and getting better. The rest is ten pounds of dynamite in a five pound bag. A slick Cassidy lifts the roof and a blow-out Deal leaves 'em happy for the half.
Second Set. Foolish Heart is only the 2nd of '90, and one of the better ones; poignant and with an end jam that's not the end - Jer wants another run at the flubbed last verse... and still flubs (albeit not as much) for a 10min version. The 18th was the night for Looks Like Rain, though this is the familiar one from Without a Net (probably used because it has professional gloss and a brisk tempo). The Weight ain't bad - for the first one ever - but Hey Pocky is totally nailed. It's the 2nd of only 3 in '90 and arguably better than 7/22. The Other One is relatively brief @ just over 4min. All 3 Wharf Rats are big on this tour, but gimme this one. It has feedback notes from Jer, and a full stop with the band following Jer so tightly. The rest, like most of the set, is average '90. Revolution is the 2nd and last of the '90 return, but not as good as 3/15.
1st Set: B
2nd Set: C
Overall = 3¼ stars
Cassidy - dig this pat Cassidy
Deal - blows huge
Hey Pocky A-way - arguably best of late-Brent era
Wharf Rat - biggest Wharf of tour (year?)
SOURCES: The miller_87643 is the best SBD (though tunings are edited), but if you're not listening to the official, the exciting Tobin matrix is recommended instead. On the gorinsky_8510 SBD the volume is not as attenuated as the Miller or Tobin. The sbd-pc_miller is the pre-FM mix/feed. The provenance of the cutler_hollister_7510 is suspect. It claims it's lineage as SBD>24 Track>DAT,
but why would you go from 2-track SBD OUTS to 24-trk? It would have to be 24-trk recorder>studio mixing board>2-trk>DAT. But if so, it would essentially be the released version on Spring 90 TOO. Given that it has the exact wave form of gorinsky_8510, you can surmise that the true lineage is SBD>DAT>PCM (reading between the lines, that makes more sense, too). Looks Like Rain is on Without a Net and Easy to Love You was used on the Backstage Pass video. The show is fuzzy on YouTube.
Subject: a REAL good time!!
Subject: We are all doing what we can...
The encore really put it over the top.
Subject: Great Sleeper show from March of 1990
High Time & Loose Lucy in the same set makes me happy.
The second set though is where the magic really comes from. Yeah no extended Terrapin or Playin' jams, but just great renditions of great Dead songs/covers.
Foolish>LL Rain>Cumberland>Weight>Hey Pocky Way
Yeah, the only jammer is Foolish Heart, but every song is played with the utmost sincerity and effort. I can't think of better Dead versions of The Weight (and yes they did a good job with it), or LL Rain.
The Cumberland absolutely SMOKES!! Jerry taking mad leads with intensity building and never at that high level again.
Consider 1990 the last of the Dead revival stride. Sure some 91' shows are great, but really, this is the cream of the crop last of the greatest. This show is overshadowed by the excellent Branford appearance the next night, but don't oversee this show because you'll miss it.

PEACE. It was never the same after 1990. I wasn't there, but the recordings do tell.
Subject: Mr Miller is the best
4 stars show/setlist/sound
The 03/29 show is the best but 03/28 and 03/30 are also great.
